Sandy DuncanActress Sandy Duncan, who starred in a long-running series of ads for Nabisco’s Wheat Thins, turns 67 today, February 20, 2013.

Back in 1971, she starred in her own sitcom, Funny Face, in which she played a perky college student. The show halted production after 13 episodes so Duncan could have surgery to remove a tumor behind her eye. The following year, a revamped version of the show returned, this time called The Sandy Duncan Show.

Jack Jones, who would later sing the theme for Love Boat, sings the Funny Face opening theme.

Opening credits, Funny Face (1971)
